Courtney Moses made four second-half 3-pointers and finished with a game-high 22 points to lead No. 16 Purdue over TCU 75-68 at the Hardwood Tournament of Hope Thursday night.
Purdue (5-1) bounced back from its first loss off the season, an 86-69 loss to Stanford on Tuesday in the opener of the tournament.
Junior guard Natalie Ventress led TCU (4-3) with 14 points.
A close game throughout, the Horned Frogs led for much of the first half and held a 1-point lead at the half. But Purdue took the lead at 16:38 in the second half behind a 3-pointer by Moses.
The Boilermakers stretched the lead to eight with 2:18 to play on another 3-pointer by Moses as the shot clock expired.
Purdue pulled away at the end by remaining steady on the free-throw line. Moses hit all eight of her attempts in the game, including four inside 28 seconds.
TCU committed only nine turnovers while forcing 14.
The Frogs return home to Daniel-Meyer Coliseum on Wednesday to host Stephen F. Austin at 7 p.m.
